Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov has hailed the attitude of Red Devils players during their 2-1 win over Manchester City on Saturday.

Manchester United overcame their noisy neighbours to claim a vital win in the Premier League and closed the gap between the second, third and fourth-placed teams in the Premier League table.

Berbatov said the Red Devils’ comeback win impressed him.

Jack Grealish put the visitors ahead in the 60th-minute, but with just 10 minutes to go Erik ten Hag’s side still managed to win the game, with Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford scoring for the home side.

Berbatov feels that the team’s togetherness and fighting spirit is something to be commended.

“Not many teams can overcome that sort of result. But when you do it, that gives you even more confidence and reason to be happy after the game and to know you are in the right direction building team spirit we saw,” he said, according to Manchester Evening News.

“For me, that’s even more important than the result.”
